What a busy night up there - numerous moving objects, not ruling out the possibility of satellites, but heading different directions and some amazing bursts of light, one to the south and one to the northwest, whilst VENUS continues to outshine all others out west.  We are being blessed with clear immaculate skies here in the Highlands


Great time for stepping outside and looking at the night sky whilst we are in "lockdown" - presently VENUS is shining very intensely in the western sky - brightest and best view of her this month




We have been having some squally, dreich winter weather here on the west coast lately, so no opportunity to skywatch for some time.  Cloudy skies and snow on the mountains - will resume when we get those clear skies again!



A skywatch last night - sky reasonably clear for solstice and a small show of the ursids meteor shower on the north west coast



We had our first official skywatch last night.  The Leonid meteor showers were giving us a good show in the November night sky, Northern Scotland west coast.
